Not only is he the 2008 People’s Sexiest Man Alive but Hugh Jackman can now add Oscar Host to his resume.
Hugh who will be hosting the Oscars for the first time, was selected
“because we want the ceremony to be fun,” says Laurence Mark, producer of the telecast.
“He can hold the screen and he can hold a stage. It doesn’t hurt that he looks amazing in a tuxedo and he’s the Sexiest Man Alive.”
Does Hugh Jackman seem like an odd choice to host the Oscars. Last year’s host, Jon Stewart, was awesome. And the year before that we had Ellen DeGeneres. Two great comediens. Hugh has some big shoes to fill.
What do you think – can he do it??
ABC will broadcast the Oscar ceremony live from the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Feb. 22.
